It’s showing up everywhere, and now it’s here: the Braswell Memorial Library’s Adult and Teen Coloring Club. Club meetings begin January 23, 2016.
The news is peppered lately with psychologists extolling the virtues of coloring for adults, including the activity’s help in relieving stress. Coloring books aimed at grown-ups may be found on many store shelves.
We are very excited to bring this free program to Braswell. The Wiley room will be open, with coloring pages and a variety of coloring utensils available. Since we are opening our club to adults and teens, we will not be separating them. The freedom to color independently or together will be encouraged.
Using soft background music, as recommended by librarians that have already started Coloring Clubs, we hope to encourage conversation, creativity and cooperation across age levels.
Club meetings will be the fourth Saturday of each month, 3-4pm. The club will meet in the Wiley Room at Braswell Memorial Library, located at 727 N Grace Street, in Rocky Mount NC.
